How to remove fisheye from Gopro Hero 7 silver?

Is there any way to remove the fisheye effect? I cannot for the life of me find it in the camera's setting or the iPhone app's settings when using my camera. I've had this camera since December and am only just now getting to use it because I have been busy, and this is extremely disappointing. I absolutely hate the fish eye effect, I just want to be able to take normal photos and videos. I really liked the camera's size and mobility but this is a dealbreaker for me. If there is no way to remove the fisheye from photos and videos then I will probably have to sell the camera. I know older models had a way to remove the fisheye effect in the camera, so I figured this one would too. Did GoPro remove that feature for some reason? I don't want to have to edit my photos and videos on my computer through some other application (as this is the only suggestion I've seen that works to remove the fisheye).

Re: How to remove fisheye from Gopro Hero 7 silver?

Actually, it's the other way around. Older GoPro cameras have typically always had the "fish-eye" because GoPro cameras use a wide angle lens. It was only recently that the premium Black models received the option for Linear (flat).

Just like with any camera using a wide angle lens, the way to remove the distortion is with an editor. Adobe Premiere Pro, for example, has presets for GoPro cameras to remove the wide angle distortion.

For your photos, you can remove the distortion on your iPhone with a number of apps. Personally, I find Snapseed to be the best mobile editor and it has tools for adjusting your photo to remove the wide angle look.

@jossikun, I agree to what has been suggested. The wide‐angle look on GoPro cameras is beneficial if you want your image to have a large field of view (FOV). If you want to minimize the barrel distortion on HERO7 Silver, post process with an editor app will do the trick.

Thank you, I will check out the smartphone app!! Is there no free desktop app to edit though? Online everyone says GoPro Studio can fix fisheye, but apparently that doesn't exist anymore. Adobe Premiere Pro has a monthly fee, and if I can find a free option, I would really like to. Thank you so much though

Re: How to remove fisheye from Gopro Hero 7 silver?

@jossikun, you can check this list of editing applications that work well with GoPro files as shared by a Hub member. Check if any of the suggested applications has the lens correction feature included.

 

If you would like product or tutorial videos to better understand these other applications, I recommend searching online video hosting websites (such as Youtube, Vimeo, etc) for published videos or other 3rd party generated content.
